I will be using this recipe often, it's definitely a keeper in my house. I used tilapia because that's what I had, and one whole egg instead of two egg whites for dipping. Also, to the egg, I added about 2 tbsp of a "herb and garlic" marinade. I forgot the paprika when making the coating mixture, and I'm sure it will be a fabulous addition next time. I did add a dash of red pepper flakes. I did not have any bread crumbs on hand, and I'm sure there would have been enough coating for my fish if I had added those. With just the cornflakes, it was not enough to coat a pound of fish, but the fillets that did get coated were super crunchy and yummy. I also thought the kosher salt did not distribute evenly even though I pulsed everything together in the mini food processor - some bites were saltier than others. However, the brand of kosher salt I bought last time seems chunkier and larger than usual, so maybe that was the problem. An easy enough problem to correct the next time. My husband complimented the fish highly, and he rarely makes any comments so I knew then it was a definite keeper. Thanks for posting!

My husband and I loved the recipe. I used a Long Island fish called a Ling, much like cod, nice and flaky. The only changes I did was not use the salt because there was plenty in the bread crumbs, and with the other spices it didn't need it. I also used the entire egg because that is just what I am used to. I also flipped the fish over for the last five minutes because the top of the fish looked dry and didn't brown. Great recipe! I would use it on any kind of fish! Will make again, thanks for sharing!
